Living in the Global Village

Welcome to your home away from home!

The Global Village in Chalmers Hall offers a space where international and U.S. students live together in a smaller dorm that creates space for sharing cultures and learning from one another in a supportive residential community.  The Global Village offers a unique opportunity for these students to build relationships and bond with each other.

Global Villagers 

  • learn about the differences and similarities amongst cultures through first-hand interactions and experiences
  • learn about themselves, gain cultural self-awareness, and a global perspective

The Roanoke International Office supports the Global Village with internationally-themed talks, events, and special dinners.

Please apply to the village by completing this application.

Contact Sarah Lupton at if you have questions.

There are several on-campus residence hall options for our international students, see this link to Residential Life.
